In this brief, IDC discusses the challenges of using tape and the benefits of disk-based data protection solutions with data deduplication, especially if a business is experiencing unabated data growth, a lack of recovery performance, and increased costs associated with physical tape. Read the brief.
In this white paper Quest's data protection experts offer five tips for effective backup and recovery to help you avoid the challenges that might keep you from fully protecting your virtual assets and infrastructure.
Go hybrid and get the best of both data protection worlds. Cloud-connected backup and recovery seamlessly combines cloud-based and onsite data protection technologies for fast, local restores and ensured, offsite disaster recovery.

Taking a more comprehensive, unified approach to managing data—recovering any data from a single console—can not only reduce your capital and operating costs, but can also provide enhanced application availability for improved IT service levels.
Improvements in scalability, availability, performance, and functionality of midrange storage systems have blurred the boundaries between network-attached, midrange, and high-end storage systems. This Magic Quadrant will help IT leaders understand storage vendors' strategies and market strengths.
Storage plays a critical role in the datacenter. To keep up with the performance, capacity, availability, and efficiency needs of today’s enterprise, storage is undergoing a transformation by leveraging flash, high-capacity disks, and integrated data management. This paper discusses how Nimble Storage’s flash-optimized architecture is engineered to accelerate applications, scale performance and capacity, protect data, and make IT more productive and empowered.
Storage is a critical factor when virtualizing your business-critical applications like Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, and Oracle databases. What features should you look for when selecting a storage vendor? Download this tech overview to learn how flash-optimized Nimble Storage accelerates performance, maximizes utilization, and cost-effectively protects your mission-critical data.
Collaboration and email applications such as Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange, and SharePoint are critical for business productivity. But care needs to be taken in selecting the right infrastructure for hosting these applications. Download this technical overview and learn how VMware, Cisco, and Nimble Storage have developed a pre-validated reference architecture that delivers industry-leading performance, data protection, and management simplicity.
Understanding the latest developments in storage technology is crucial when planning a virtual server storage architecture, and choosing the wrong storage architecture can dramatically impair your ability to provide application resources and recoverability. This best practices guide will show you how to lay the foundation for an efficient, easy-to-manage storage environment.
Nimble Storage’s patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL™) is the industry’s first flash-optimized storage designed from the ground up to maximize efficiency. In this product brief, you’ll learn how Nimble Storage customers run more workloads with less storage infrastructure, protect more data, and streamline data management so they can focus on higher-value projects.
It’s easy to underestimate the performance and capacity requirements for VDI storage, and missteps now can lead to expensive problems later. In “Risk-Free Storage for VDI,” you’ll learn how Nimble Storage delivers responsive performance to handle peak VDI workloads, integrated data protection, and instant backups and restores—all for dramatically less than you’re paying now.
Get this 36-page technical report and learn how to deploy 1,000 virtual desktops using VMware View 5.1 with VMware vSphere 5, Cisco UCS, and a single 3U Nimble Storage array. This validated solution provides efficient infrastructure, adaptive performance, rapid provisioning, linear scalability, and dramatically simplified management.
PC life-cycle management (PCLM) solutions primarily focus on deploying or moving an application or an operating environment to a new user location. Functions include packaging, distributing, installing , and updating an application or an operating environment. These solutions provide a certain level of automation and are certainly more advanced than dealing strictly with scripts. However, they have complex workflows and do not provide the highest level of automation. In today's multidevice world, where the average user carries three or more devices, this paradigm alone is not agile enough for modern end users.
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.

For the new or veteran Database Administrator (DBA):
As a DBA, perhaps you’ve seen database engines such as object-oriented and OLAP databases come and go, and you’re wondering why NoSQL should be any different.
You may ask questions like:
What kinds of administration and management work does NoSQL entail?
How are security, backup and recovery, database monitoring and tuning handled?
How do I create databases, objects, and read/write data without SQL?
Learn what NoSQL is, why it’s needed, and when it’s not.

We are living in an age of explosive data growth. IDC projects that the digital universe is growing 50% a year, doubling in size every 2 years. In media and entertainment, the growth is even faster as capacity-intensive formats such as 4K, 8K, and 360/VR gain traction. Fortunately, new trends in data storage are making it easier to stay ahead of the curve.
In this paper, we will examine how object storage stacks up against LTO tape for media archives and backup. In addition to a detailed total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis covering both capital and operational expenses, this paper will look at the opportunity costs of not leveraging the real-time data access of object storage to monetize existing data.
Finally, we will demonstrate the validity of the analysis with a real-world case study of a longstanding network TV show that made the switch from tape to object storage.
The limitations of tape storage go way beyond its lack of scalability. Data that isn’t searchable is becoming

"Ransomware is top of mind for many organizations’ leaders as their organizations face the potentially disastrous aftermath of successful attacks.
ESG has surveyed IT leaders and organizations to find out how big of a problem ransomware is, what are the business consequences of downtime caused by these attacks, and which are some of the best practices and capabilities organizations need to apply to be protected.
According to the ESG research, nearly two-thirds of surveyed organizations across North America and Western Europe experienced a ransomware attack at some point last year, with 22% reporting weekly attacks. The attacks have helped make cybersecurity a target of IT investment, and spending is accelerating.
What’s needed to fend off this epidemic are best practices and tools to:
Prevent or at least mitigate attacks
Protect data and backup data

In a context of mass data fragmentation on-premises and in the cloud, organizations now struggle with the compounded complexities brought about by modern workloads such as containers, NoSQL/NewSQL databases, and SaaS applications. These new workloads are turning traditional backup and recovery approaches on their head—in particular, in Microsoft Office 365 deployments for which new backup, recovery, and data management schemas must be deployed.
